PPD investigates suspicious death after woman’s body left in apartment two days

Pensacola Police Department spokesman Mike Wood confirmed the deceased is an elderly woman who was living with her son.

Police have been questioning the woman’s son on the lawn of the apartment complex about care for his mother. The man has been loudly answering officers’ questions and has been verbally confrontational at times. 

He has yelled at the officers that they are “telling him lies.” The man also keeps reminding officers that he last paid rent May 6.

Police say the son called another family member after his mother died, and that relative contacted police.

Sonora PD investigates suspicious death of boy

Sonora Police are investigating the death of a 22-month-old boy who was admitted to Adventist Health Sonora in January for flu symptoms but was found to have severe brain and internal organ damage.

Koltyn Sparks was unresponsive when he was airlifted to University of California Davis Children’s Hospital early in the morning of Jan. 15 and died that afternoon.

Police Chief Turu VanderWiel said Wednesday the case is considered a suspicious death for now, rather than homicide, because he has not seen the final report from the Stanislaus County Coroner. Sonora PD was contacted to investigate because the boy had been staying with a sitter on Shepherd Street in Sonora while his mother worked. The sitter took the boy to Adventist Health.
